Wonderpot: A perfect Meatless Monday

Oh wow!

Can you say WONDERPOT?

Perfect for a Meatless Monday

and NO ONE will miss the meat, I promise!!

This is just insane for so many reasons!

It’s super quick to make, minimal ingredients, can be switched up easily and tastes delish!!

image
32 oz chicken broth
1 lb spaghetti. linguini or bucatini (my fav) noodles, avoid thin spaghetti or angel hair as they will cook too fast and get mushy!
28 oz can diced tomatoes with basil & oregano
2 T olive oil
1 sweet onion, sliced thin
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 c sliced mushrooms
1/2 bag fresh spinach (mine was bad, will use next time)
several shakes of red pepper flakes
salt

Put it all in the pot, making sure everything is submerged in liquid, if not add a little more broth or water.
Bring to a boil, cut down to medium and simmer for apx 15 mins with lid on,
stir every few mins.
It makes its on sauce, which thickens and gains flavor as it sits!!
Allow the pasta to “rest” for apx 5-10 mins prior to serving.
This is truly a find!!

I topped mine with crumbled feta, fresh thyme & chopped black olives.
It was awesome!!
and gave it a Greek feel which my family loves.
Feel free to top with your fav toppings.

PERFECT for MEATLESS MONDAY

and it’s SO EASY

ENJOY!

million dollar spaghetti

Follow me!!

Tonight I made Million Dollar Spaghetti that I found on Pintrest. I am going to try one Pintrest recipe a week, I will share the recipe. my pics and review of said recipe. This one rates high for the easy factor, fair on the fact that it dirties a ton of dishes, high on the fact that you could easily take this somewhere. It makes quite a lot. High on flavor, this is one of those old school recipes, it certainly isn’t healthy in fact I don’t really want to know how many calories a serving has but, it is really yummy!! Glad I pinned this one!!
